[COLOR="DarkSlateGray"][FONT="Trebuchet MS"][SIZE="1"]I've got two different ideas that I thought would make good RPs and I was wondering if anybody else thought they were interesting.

The first is one based off of the novel 'American Gods' by Neil Gaiman (or 'Anansi Boys' which takes place in the same universe). Its an extremely good book and I think it'd make a really good RP where the players could play the gods or normal people who get drawn into it, but I'd be worried that not many people have read it so not too many people would be into it (and if you haven't read it, I really recommend it).

The second one would be based off the TV series Heroes. Which, also, is a great show and I think a lot of people on this site would have seen it; plus, I think the show lends itself to an RPG fairly well.

So, let me know what you guys think or if you'd be interested in something like this. [/SIZE][/FONT][/COLOR]

Well, either of them are good ideas. I am a big fan of 'Mythology in Modern Settings', being the myth whore I am. As for the other one...well, I never watched Heroes, but I'd be damned if I'm not a Superheroes fan.

So, I suggest you just role a [URL="http://www.wizards.com/dnd/dice/dice.htm"][U]die[/U][/URL].

[FONT="Trebuchet MS"][SIZE="1"][COLOR="DarkSlateGray"]Yeah, the thing I like most about the Heroes idea is that it would be different from what I think the norm is for RPGs in the way that your character (at least starting out) would be a normal person in pretty normal situations until the powers come. Also, the second season premieres pretty soon so I'd think there'd be a lot of interest, whereas I don't think a lot of people are very interested in American Gods (not to say it isn't an awesome book).

But I don't think I'd be able to think of an RPG story that could really do Heroes justice, coming up with a good plot would take a ton of thought and a lot of collaberation from everyone. I think most people would want to play the 'heroes' but you'd need at least one person to play a 'company man' type of character and one or two to play the 'bad guys' but they'd be allowed to be a lot more powerful though very outnumbered (and who knows, in the RPG the baddies might win). Still, I would really love to see one happen, if anyone is really interested.[/font][/color][/size]
